A New Year

I don’t like making New Year’s Resolutions…especially those that involve diet and exercise.  I feel we should eat right and exercise year-round.  I know I could do better and I will  strive to do so but this is not my resolution.

My resolution?  I want to slow down, enjoy life, and make the most of every  moment.  Life goes by so fast.  I want to appreciate others and build stronger relationships with those in my life and make new friendships.  I want to be a better wife, a better sister, a better daughter, a better mentor, a better artisan, a better blogger, a better designer, a better friend,  a better person.

I am an avid fan of Alabama Chanin.  I appreciate how this company  focuses  on slow design and sustainability.  In one of Natalie’s recent posts she says ” Wouldn’t it be a wonderful thing if we only brought products (things) into our homes that we wanted to keep for the rest of our lives?  And when those products and things become old, we simply recycle them into our own lives.”  What an amazing and simple concept!  One I will truly strive for in this year to come.

Happy New Year to you and yours!
